Colin Trevorrow Reveals The Downside Of Directing A Star Wars Film

By: Benjamin Hart

For those of us who have grown up loving a certain Galaxy far, far away, the prospect of somehow being involved in a Star Wars production, or at best, being able to direct a Star Wars film, is incredibly exciting. Only a handful of individuals have had that honor so far, one of them being Colin Trevorrow.

Trevorrow will soon helm Star Wars: Episode IX, and has been talking a lot about it in recent months. While the job of directing the next Star Wars film comes with many perks, it does have it's negatives, albeit few. In an interview with Cinemablend Trevorrow touched on one downside of being a Star Wars director:

"Unfortunately, Rian's film (Episode VIII) is the first one I won't be able to watch as an audience member. I got that privilege with The Force Awakens. I just got to go see it with a Star Wars fan. I got to sit next to my kid and just giggle as we read the crawl because we were so excited. Rogue One was the same way. I didn't see it in advance. That time is over now. Star Wars is no longer that experience for me. If there's anything kind of sad about it, it's that I don't get to have that. But I wouldn't trade it, don't get me wrong."

Star Wars: Episode IX is slated to hit theaters on May 24th, 2019.
